Anyone done this on a fuel injected model, if so what is the limit of the standard injection?

If I had 5000 dollars I'd just trade in for a big twin instead of engine work !

Personally i'd probly invest in a 1200-1250 kit with a bunch of headwork, cams...bla bla bla to get ya in 100hp range. But anyhow if you wanna look into some of the larger kits, check out xlforums.net and join the forum there, there's a bunch of guys over there that have done larger kits with a lot posts with the details on what exactly what they did.

Is 100hp enough?

What sort of times would one expect down the quarter?

Will it lay rubber rolling on the throttle (ie not static burnout)?

Hi from the UK and welcome to HDF. You are a rare breed, owning a genuine 90". They occasionally get talked about in here, but I haven't seen anyone actually admit to doing it. Expect plenty of questions!

I believe Zippers makes a 100" motor. That should be a handful.
